The War Of Gaffes
I remember the sound bite very well where Obama thought the microphones were off. He wanted to pass the message that after his reelection he would have "more flexibility" with Vladimir Putin and asked that the message be passed on. I'm sure it was and it gave Putin the incentive to show Obama. courtesy of the world stage, that he can make Obama look like the amateur community organizer that he is and always will be. He couldn't muster the world community behind him to back up his false bravado. I tire of having a rodeo clown cut out as my President. I don't know about you.
The Russians aren't our friends Barack. They also back Iran Barack. They use their surrogates to sponsor state backed terrorism Barack. Don't your intel people clue you in on the little details like that Barack?
This Syrian debacle was such an enormous string of gaffes and Keystone Cop moves that the people of the world have to be laughing at our President. Just how incompetent can a community organizer turned chief executive officer of a nation be? You just witnessed it.
People Should have Seen This Coming
How could an address that was initially intended to be Obama's kickoff to possibly starting World War III over a thug like Syria's al Assad turn into what we witnessed last night in the blink of a Kerry eyelash? This was supposed to be that little scrimmage somewhere between a pin prick and who knows what depending on who was describing the action that was about to ensue.
Russia, in the form of Putin, threw a monkey wrench into Obama's plan by taking what Kerry made as a statement, at the time saying it wasn't possible to happen, and turning it on a dime making Obama look like a dunce. Just more gaffing along in the string of gaffes. Then immediately after indicating Kerry's impossibility might become a possibility all kinds of weird things happened. The emergency Security Council session that was about to happen was abruptly cancelled. by whom? The Russians themselves leaving Obama to wipe more egg off of his face and his speech writers back at work furiously writing another speech.
I am beginning to now believe that this whole fiasco was another Obama administration effort at diversion and distraction. The blame will be shifted somehow one way or the other by Obama. He did appear a bit nervous behind that same podium with back drop that he used to tell us he had killed Osama bin Laden. somewhere in his translation he forgot to give Seal Team 6 credit for the doing.
When is the next time now you think you'll hear anything serious being discussed concerning Syria? Let that whole fiasco get wrapped up in the useless United Nation's and it will be effectively buried. That might be the gaffe to top off all the gaffes that led to last night.
A couple of years back Syria started its little civil war and there were a few thousand casualties, not enough to ruffle a Nobel Peace prize winner's feathers though. It was also a known fact that Assad possessed chemical and biological weapons. Those same weapons may have been a gift from Saddam Hussein. Shhhh.... We're not supposed to know that. So things proceeded along and the slaughter of innocent civilians and actual freedom fighters continued and Al Qaeda operatives started migrating into Syria for a piece of the action. Shhhh.... We're not supposed to know that either.
Then last year Obama overloaded his hummingbird arse with his alligator mouth and drew this invisible ink "red line" that only he had the super powers to see and move at his whim. Causalities now exceed 100K, it appears someone used chemical weapons in Syria and things took a serious turn with Obama wanting to do the bombs away routine without Congressional approval. Though last night he stated that the solution to Syria isn't a matter for our military to settle.
Before People Said, Now Wait Just A Minute..."
So he gaffed it along and decided that it might be best to ask Congress to do what the US Constitution gives that body the authority to do and not him. People keep misconstruing the actual powers of the War Powers Resolution but that is a different discussion altogether. The hand writing was on the wall that his proposal wasn't going to cut mustard in the halls of Congress. There is no imminent danger that a cheap thug like Assad presents to our nation.
So Lurch Kerry makes his off the cuff remark about Assad giving up his chemical weapons. Well, in the mind of an old KGB operative like Putin, he knew exactly how to put a stall on all this war talk so he can look good and our community organizer look like he stuck not only his face, but his whole head, in the egg bucket. So they took Kerry at his word. We shouldn't take the Russians or Assad at theirs. Call an emergency session of the UN Security Council quick. Then throw in a caveat that ANY military action of any sort by this country has to be off the table and there you go. Then have the emergency session cancelled an hour before it was to happen. The completed gaffe circle had been formed and exposed.
It should be extremely uncomfortable for anyone to watch that whole course of events as it unfolded. Some may find it amusing but I'm not laughing. It frightens me that this nation is in the hands of such an incompetent Commander-in-Chief. Obama has never had his political house in order much less be able to lead one. President's need to speak with resolve and clarity and not bluster and the drawing of imaginary red lines all over the globe.
Some pundits are claiming that Putin "saved Obama." No he didn't. He beat him like he owned him and showed him to be the rank amateur that many of us already knew him to be before this latest series of gaffes. This whole thing has been painful to watch as Obama continues to diminish the office of the Presidency. Carter did something similar but Obama is making Carter look like he knew what he was doing. You young people don't understand a word of what I just said but back then it wasn't pretty either.
This is the anniversary of 9-11 and there are reams of unfinished business to be taken care of since that tragedy. Last year in 2012 we witnessed Benghazi. How about we unravel that cover up before considering getting involved in anything remotely resembling a war? I now see it as a diversion to distract us from the actual pressing issues facing OUR nation. The world can now wait.
